COLUMBIANA, OH – Over the years, Columbiana has seen plenty of point guards come and go, each of them leaving their own mark on the program, but one in particular sticks out as a player who wants to leave his mark as one of the best leaders on the floor. Tyler Andersen has taken his talents to the next level by working on his craft day in and day out but he has also been able to step up into the role of a team leader and someone who prides himself on being a part of the Columbiana Clippers basketball program!
Andersen, currently in the middle of his senior basketball campaign, is playing great basketball as the floor general for Coach Johnson and the Clippers. When talking to Tyler, he will be the first to give credit to his teammates before ever claiming any success on his own, but not only that, he will be the first to tell you that he is not even worried about individual success, he just wants to win and will do whatever it takes to make that happen!
This mindset of doing everything needed to get a win has started to rub off on his teammates as well as the Clippers are starting to heat up as the second half of the season gets underway! Tyler and the Clips will look to get two big wins starting on Tuesday at home against Lowellville then on Friday at Wellsville.
YSN’s own, DJ Yokley, was able to catch up with Tyler via video chat this week to talk about the current season, how COVID has effected him and his senior season, what his plans are for after high school, what it means to him to be a Clipper, and so much more!
